The London borough of Southwark Activities for Children, and Young People Strategy workshop with voluntary, community and charitable organisations takes place on 23rd February 2017 10am to 1pm.
This will focus on the development of the commissioning framework for the delivery of activities for children and young people that meets the priorities of the strategy.
The Activities for Children and Young People Strategy (ACYPS) 2017 – 2020 sets out Southwark Council’s approach to providing and commissioning activities for children and young people over the next three years.
The strategy, which was published just before Christmas, focuses on activities outside of schools and colleges that are open to all children and young people in the borough, and reflects their views and ideas.
It was developed in partnership with young people and the Council have sought the views of as many children, young people and their families and carers as possible.
In order to promote collaboration, ownership and consistency the Council want to engage with the voluntary, community, and charitable sector, to translate the strategic priorities of the strategy into day to day practise, supported by relevant and appropriate monitoring arrangements. To ensure that the services are designed and shaped with you, the voluntary sector, the Council is holding a workshop to enable you to contribute to, and assist in the development of measurable outcomes for Southwark’s young people. The agreed outcomes and monitoring arrangements that emerge from this workshop will be reflected in the new youth commissioning framework that will run from 1st October 2017 to 31st March 2019.
Aims and Objectives of the workshop
• To formally engage the voluntary, community and charitable sector to inform how the strategy will be delivered in partnership with them.
• To translate the 5 strategic priorities Happy, Healthy, Active, Safe, and Prepared into deliverable activity on the ground.
• To ensure the work of the commissioned youth and play providers is consistent with the 5 Priority outcomes.
• To agree clear outcomes and monitoring arrangements for the 2017 to 2019 youth commissioning framework aligned the work of the voluntary, community and charitable sector
We would like as many organisations as possible who work with children and young people to come along to the workshop and help to ensure that through working in partnership we can delivery the best services possible for our young people.
